2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Biggest problem with this beer is that they called it Belgian dark strong. This is in no way even close to the flavor or aroma of a belgian dark strong. None of his beer does. This is more like an over carbed northern English brown then anything else

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty aroma with cherry notes and hop bitterness on the nose. Appearance is a deep Amber with a tan head with a below avg head. Flavor is a malty toasty blend with notes of chocolate. The finish is super dry. Bitterness is very high. Mouthfeel is full with medium carbonation. Overall, the beer is lacking the malt complexity and is way too bitter and dry for a Belgian dark strong. It also lacks enough Belgian character from the esters and phenolic compounds.
